Good Eating Monday: Dump Apple Crisp

Greetings! Final week in October!  How many trick or treaters come to your door?
Generally I get 1 to 7, max. Most people who currently own houses on my street don't have children anymore, though a couple of the rental houses have young families---so who knows?
Today's Good Eating recipe is one from Pinterest for a "Dump Apple Cake," which is really a "Dump Apple Crisp" that I tried last night.
The ingredients are just sliced apples, topped with a yellow cake mix and drizzled with 1 stick of melted butter.
Missing from the recipe, however, any specific pan size or how many apples to slice and seasoning.
It's was a "wing it" recipe on some blog.

But apples in pies or crisps are tastier with a bit of lemon juice and cinnamon.
So here's the modified recipe for this Dump Apple Crisp I adjusted for a 10 x 13 pan:
10 -12 sliced apples--enough to fill pan with about a 2 inch or more layer of apple slices, since apples shrink with cooking
(choose good cooking apples like Rome Beauty, McIntosh, Jonathan, Honey Crisp, Fugi, Gala or Braeburn.)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 bottle of ground cinnamon to shake over top
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter or light butter, melted.
Heat oven to 350. Spray 10 x 13 pan with oil spray.
Toss sliced apples in lemon juice then spread evenly into pan. Shake cinnamon over top.
Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over top of apples, then drizzle with melted butter.
Cover pan with foil. Bake for 20 minutes covered, then
uncover pan and bake another for 25 minutes until top is a golden crisp.
(Total bake time will be 45 to 50 minutes.)
Serve warm with either whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
This was delicious with ice cream.
Adding nuts or raisins would also enhance this apple dump crisp and any fruit could be substituted for apples or mixed in with the apples: canned, fresh or frozen pears, peaches, berries, etc.
Eat up, me hearties, yo-ho!
